Amazon picks up Emmy for video discovery

Amazon Instant video has picked up a 2013 Technology and Engineering Emmy Award for its work on personalised recommendation engines for video discovery – Amazon’s first-ever Emmy.

“Our goal is to give customers the best possible movie and TV watching experience. That means both enabling customers to find exactly what they’re looking for and helping them discover new TV shows and movies in a personalized way,” said Bill Carr, vice president of music and video for Amazon.

The Technology and Engineering Emmy Awards will be presented in January in conjunction with the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
